I'm new to HubPages. I posted a new Hub a few hours ago and have had 7 views so far. I only have 2 followers, so I'm curious where others are finding it. In their feed? And speaking of the feed, what goes on each person's feed? I'm following a few people but have things on my feed from random people. Is everyone's feed the same? One big party? If that were the case it seems there'd be a ton more on the feed.
So many questions I have about this mysterious new place called HubPages.
It could be that others are seeing your Hub in their feeds, or that someone commented on it which somehow prompted it to show up in another person's feed, or that you're viewing it, or that it was shared by one of the readers... there many possibilities!
Congrats on the new Hub though!
I've wondered the same thing about page view stats on my unpublished hubs.
The counter counts when you open the hub yourself when you are creating it.
I was curious to know where do people see my unpublished hub. So, I tried observing my stats everytime I edit or open my hub...and yes, Barbara Kay is right, page view counter is incremented everytime you open it or when you're creating it.
Hmmmm. Thanks for the info. Maybe I'm not as amazing I thought. Hahahaaaaa!
I've noticed the same thing. While your Hub is in the 'Pending' mode (you've published it but it's not Featured yet), the images show on the right column of your Profile page under "Recent Images." If someone clicks on one of those images, the link to the new Hub appears right on top of the picture.
This is dangerous, because a plagiarist could steal your article while it is in the 'Pending' mode. I think HubPages should change this.
There's something else, too. If you haven't designated at least one Hub for "In the Spotlight", your 'Pending' Hub will show up there. This is really bad, because search engines will find that it is a dead link for them and might take a long time coming back to it.
Choose at least one published Hub for your "Spotlight" by editing your Profile page.
Good tip. I currently have six hubs rotating in my spotlight carousel, so I'm good there, but glad you pointed that out. I just posted two articles less than two hours ago and already have 10 views on one and 12 on the other and both are still pending. I don't think any of those views are my own, so it's very interesting. Scary to think someone could steal your hub before its officially published.
By the way, I'm laughing right now cause last night when I was working on the articles and told my husband I wanted to get them up, he said, "Tomorrow's Memorial Day. No one's going to read them tomorrow." I said, "Oh yes they will." I just told him they got 22 views collectively in two hours. Sweet!
Those really could be your views while you were editing, etc.
But, I'll tell you how you solve the problem. You put a notice on your Profile warning people not to visit any of your new Hubs until they are featured because it will upload malware and to visit Writer Fox's Hubs instead.
That should do it.

I just finished editing a Hub and signed out. Then I called up the Hub only to get this terrible message that puts a very bad light on Hubbers as possible violators of "The Code."What a poor image this gives the public. Being new to HB, my reaction is one of a public person who knows...

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!

I just tried to publish my second article but I keep getting the same message I received when I tried to publish my first article, that it was still unpublished. Can some one help with this?

I've been away for some time but just published a new Hub. A poem to be exact which I would love to share on my Facebook.Whenever I copy the link to my Facebook, I get a text saying the Hub is unpublished? It's not pending anymore and all my other Hubs work perfectly by copy and paste their...

I used to like to bring the silly moderation messages to light, in order to hopefully get better explanations of the new rules that HP created throughout 2011.Eventually, the lack of definitions by HP just became irritating and I stopped and just left the account to fester.But, for 2012, I was...

I really do need some help to remedy this.All that was done was to change the Kindle price of my book from $3.99 to $4.99. One digit and my page is DOWN.For that, the hub page - which has over 400,000 page views so far and sometimes gets several hundred visits a day - is now off line for probably...
